OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Leckenby is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arsene Wenger with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 20.889 billion Leckenbyians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Law & Order and Social Welfare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arjen. The average income tax rate is 45%, but much higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Euros each year, a determined opposition debates the relative benefits of Arial and Times New Roman for days on end, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leckenby's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Euro.

Leckenby is ranked 1st in Emirates and 61,879th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.256 Stalins.
